Looking forward to JIBE 2019


As always, it's Thursday so we are starting to think about pre-booking for JIBE 2019.

Took a look at NOAA's tide predictions for May 2019 https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/noaatidepredictions.html?i...

Looks like the most reasonable assumption is the week of Monday 5/13/2019 with a Low Tide starting at 11:14 am...

Angus... is this a reasonable assumption?




In real life, they call me Spencer

Flying-- HQ Symphony 2.1.4 (its old), 2.5m & 4m Born Kite NS2, 6m Flysurfer Peak 1 (a minty fresh Gift) and 12m Flysurfer Peak 2 (the gnat fart catcher).
Riding-- VTT Stinger XR Hybrid and an XR/VTT Frankenbuggy (Tandem).
Playing-- Silverangel #429 ... oh wait thats the other forum.
JWC-- Founding member and self appointed president.

PB: 30.5 mph

You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore, ...and also a boat with no holes in it.

Yeah I was looking at the wrong notes. I meant to have put down 4/29 mon. low tide 11:47 through 5/3 fri. low tide 2:58 same reasons
fewer beach goers.

Sooner is better. I'm already at home looking forward to next year. How about a Fall JIBE?

The very first JIBE was in the fall, when we first thought of the idea for the event. Then I realized that we had dodged a few meteorological bullets being in the thick of hurricane season. The odds have played out well for May, but you never know.

Right guys, we'll get to work on it. I think I lost the Ouija Board in the sand. I'll work the tide dates, check with Jekyll Island and lock something in as soon as possible. But if one more person asks me "What's the weather going to be like?"...

I should have added that unless there is some extraordinary circumstance, we should not expect objections. Even in the past when JIBE has coincided with the Turtle Crawl Triathlon activities, it has not created conflict besides minor parking lot issues.

Nonetheless, until we get confirmation, it would be wise to leave a back door out on financial obligations such as rental deposits and work related vacation requests. We should have something within the week.

Until this year, I always thought the turtle crawl was like the mating season for the turtles.
